Oil on canvas – 2 x 4 feet – November 2019 This was really fun to paint, since I took artistic license to get the look of the “Fairy”. I added a foot, and of course the wings, but I also wanted the wings to be very subtle. It was a nice change for me. I painted over a canvas of a very large chicken that was unfinished from 4 years ago.
Born in 1944 in Washington, D.C., I have painted and sculpted most of my life. At 74 years of age, I feel I am at my most creative time of life. I started painting a series of "Nebula Art" in 2015 after seeing the Hubble Space Telescope images. I find so much joy in attempting to capture these beautiful photographs. I live now in Naples, Florida, and have 18 completed paintings so far and will continue to paint as long as I am able. I studied art and sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.; painting and sculpture at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va. I have taken art classes in my community of Pelican Bay. Exhibition include Swiss Embassy, Torpedo Factory, Pelican Bay Community Center, Naples Art Association and Rookery Bay Go to the artist's portfolio
